    Such a beautifully written story, that is ultimately heartwarming and uplifting, despite the incredibly sad and upsetting things that our two main characters have been through But since meeting and spending time together, Orla and Luke are both perhaps just starting to heal and help each other Luke s world was turned upside when his wife suddenly denied incredibly unexpectedly Orla lives in a castle 3 hours away from Luke, and hides herself away from the world she is the ultimate definition of self isolation and the only connection between Luke and Orla is a social media site For Luke s wife Helen loved the Galleria site similar to instagram , and follows Orla s account and they have formed a friendship online without even knowing each others names Helen sensed something about Orla and wanted to help, but then her life was tragically caught short Once Luke tracks down Orla, and they somehow slowly get to know each other, the story really does take on a life of its own Orla s account focuses on beautiful objects that have minor imperfections, she loves being able to find and highlight the beauty in broken things, and Helen who although we only meet her briefly is a huge character in the book , also has started to love finding that same beauty in the imperfect What I found really moving, gripping and had real empathy for, was when Orla finally explains to Luke just what happened to make her the way she currently is I won t tell you any details but its completely understandable that she would now live her life in the shadows as a result of what she went through Victoria Connelly s writing seems to go from strength to strength, and as much as I love her lighter hearted Austen Addicts and Booklovers series, this is probably her best book to date Absolutely loved it Thank you to Lake Union Publishing and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily,.

    This story really touched my heart It s a bit different from the other books by Victoria Connelly but it s equally heartwarming and captivating A beautiful story of friendship and healing in the idyllic setting of the Suffolk coast As usual the author has a way of making you feel there and I can t appreciate it enough Great suspense and many twists and turns had me wondering until the very end what was going to happen and I must say that the ending did surprise me Not predictable at all Absolutely recommended.Thank you to NetGalley, Lake Union Publishing UK and the author for an early copy TheBeautyofBrokenThings NetGalley

    When Luke s wife is killed in a train accident, he is lost After finding information of a gift she wanted to give to an online friend, he does a search and finds Orla, a recluse who suffers from her own demons Overall, I found this one hard to put down Both have issues and help each other find a new normal I also liked that there was not an actual romance, but a friendship between them Nice change Would highly recommend this sweet and touching story Another great hit by a wonderful author.
